Denver Broncos: Four players in danger of not making the roster
The Denver Broncos have some players vying for roster spots and some are at a very important crossroads. Here are four players on the bubble.
The preseason is quickly coming to a close, which means the Denver Broncos and general manager John Elway will have to make some difficult decisions as the team moves from having 90 players on the roster to just 53 with 10 players on the practice squad.
Depending on how things shake out this preseason with injuries and other unforeseen factors, the Broncos could end up keeping more than just 63 players that are currently on the 90-man roster, but in all likelihood, there will be some players that come in from the outside whether via waivers, free agency, trade, or whatever other avenues.
There will be many factors considered when the Broncos look to trim their roster, including money and injuries, but probably mainly performance.
The Broncos made a fairly unprecedented move recently to place Menelik Watson on injured reserve and release him, eating a larger dead money hit (nearly $6 million) than Elway has ever absorbed as the team’s general manager.
Even with poor investments, Elway has found ways to re-structure or limit the dead money hit.
With Watson’s release, it seems like every move is on the table.
Which players are on the roster bubble and in danger of missing out on the 53-man roster as we approach the end of the preseason?
